On Monday 17th June the elite clothing line Savile Row Collections displayed its men’s designs at the Long Room in the Lords Cricket Pavilion, London, UK. Press and media were on hand to view the unique showing of the very best in Savile Row’s “sartorial artistry”, as Master Tailor Andrew Ramroop describes his firm’s work.
Trinidadian born Andrew Ramroop OBE, CMTT (gold) is celebrating his 25th anniversary at the helm of the famous firm, MAURICE SEDWELL. Ramroop journey with Savile Row began in 1974, when the young London College of Fashion graduate was chosen by Savile Row founder Maurice Sedwell to become his assistant. Located on London’s Fleet Street, Maurice Sedwell Ltd. grew from a gold medal-winning tailor shop to one of the UK’s best known names in Bespoke Tailoring.
The star studded event was choreographed by GQ UK stylist Jo Levin and featured the work of twenty of Savile Row’s finest tailors. Designs featured fresh summer looks, including blazers, sportswear and summer suits. All designs were personally overseen by Ramroop, who in 2008 coined the Andrew Ramroop Tailoring Standards (ARTS) which is now the benchmark for Savile Row tailoring standards.
Savile Row is renowned in the UK, with high profile clients ranging from captains of industry, sports stars, politicians and entertainers. Guests at the event included His Excellency Garvin Nicholas, High Commissioner for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to London, former Australian pace-man Geoff Thompson, Trinidadian opera singer Neil Latchman, celebrated England cricketers Mark Ramprakash and Grahame Gooch as well as Trinidadian cricket icon Brian Lara.
